What to Do With Old Golf Clubs

By Chris Joseph

So you have finally decided to take your golf game to a higher level by purchasing that shiny new set of golf clubs you've had your eye on. Now you just need to figure out what to do with your old set. Fortunately, after you take a little time to polish up and/or refurbish those old clubs, there are many ways to easily get rid of them.


One way to get rid of your old clubs while helping others in the process is to donate them to an organization or business. With the limitations often found in education budgets, you can help out your local school by donating the clubs to the golf team, or for use in gym class. Or, consider giving them to a thrift shop, which could make them a more affordable option for someone who may not have the money to purchase a new set. Another idea is to give the clubs to a charity auction that will use the sale proceeds to raise money for a worthy cause. An added benefit is that you may be able to deduct the donation on your income taxes.


Another option is to try to trade in your clubs on a new set. Many retailers such as Dick's Sporting Goods and Golfsmith will give you an allowance for your old clubs toward the purchase of a new set, and many club manufacturers have trade-in programs in place. In some cases, you may be able to get as much $60 or more for a single club.


Of course, you can always sell your clubs individually or as a set. There is no shortage of outlets for selling them. If you want to auction them off, you can list them on eBay at sporting-goods.shop.ebay.com/. If you have a friend or relative who is just starting to play golf, do him a favor by selling him your old clubs at a discounted price. You can also list them on 2nd Swing Golf, who will also give you store credit for your clubs.
